It can be done.  We outsourced much of it once we got the process down.  But 
WispAmerica has been pretty good to me and I think they think that AF as its 
own show may cut attendance to WispAmerica.  
Two shows, same season, one much cheaper than the other...

So yeah, WispAmerica has an AnimalFarm track.  Same format as before.  
Manufacturers send engineers and we discuss technical stuff.  And I don’t have 
to do much other than MC the event.

How feasible would it be to bring AF back to Utah and outsource the unpalatable 
parts of planning?

Obviously the cost would go up per person? Once you broke it off into wispa I 
haven't attended since...

Maybe I should give it a shot, you will be having a AF group @ wispamerica in 
20 days?

    That's hitting the nail on the head.  I don't want penis enlargement spam, 
but I definitely want to hear about surge protectors and power systems and 
network equipment.

    Spam me Chuck.  Spam me like one of your French girls.

      Ha... I never even realized that those weren't going to the list 
anymore... for some reason gmail puts it in my afmug folder.

      The only thing that's slightly annoying is that I get them more than once 
because my other email address is on Chuck's list too, but I don't care enough 
to bother unsubscribing... I actually like getting spam about stuff that I'm 
interested in.

        The alternative is going back to the Friday spam and swap fest.

        BTW, my distributors have spam rights too.  But only on Friday morning.

        I prefer the list to be free from spam like it is now compared to

        I hope that was someone being humorous...  Otherwise...
        #OFFWITHTHEIRHEAD  ...   Come on, Chuck's products are about the most
        worthy of any vendor I know.   And POE fuses...  It's a fricken 

        BTW I need to by a bunch and wish I could buy the little racks with
        them..   Oh well, amazon...

          You do realize that this list is my list, right?

          So essentially every time I make a posting here I am spamming you, 

          I used to do it every Friday right here on this list.
          But I think it is cleaner and better quality to use MailChimp.

          Did you unsubscribe from the Mail Chimp?  That will prevent it from 
ever happening again.

          I just got spammed by Chuck McCown. What's up with that?

          I sure as hell haven't signed up for any of his email lists nor done 
any business with him, or even indicate I would like to. I find it in extremely 
poor taste to mine the Af list for spam targets.
